How long do dental crowns last?

Dental crowns in Bloomington, IN play a critical part in modern dentistry because they take on a variety of roles, including:

  • Supporting a weak or damaged tooth—Following a root canal treatment or tooth trauma
  • Concealing a tooth flaw or discoloration—Concealing the abnormality to the gumline
  • Capping a dental implant post—Following jawbone integration of the implant
  • Anchoring a dental bridge—Capping healthy teeth on either side of a smile gap

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that caps a prepared tooth to the gumline. It is custom-designed to match your natural teeth in the shade and shape. In our dental office, we use primarily ceramic crowns for a natural look and longer-lasting restoration. On average, a dental crown can last for up to fifteen years with proper care—and sometimes for life.

If you’ve had a root canal treatment or severe trauma to a tooth, chances are you already have a dental crown. The same is true if you have a dental implant!
